Multiple authors, adding pages, upload directories

  • I’d like to have multiple Authors, with roles that enable them to add & edit their own pages. Is this possible?

    I have tried the Role Manager plugin, whilst giving many more options, adding pages isn’t one of them.

    Also I use IImage Browser as find it better than the default. Would it be possible to restrict authors to their own upload directories for images (via any upload plugins that are out there).

    Question 3, can I easily display say the last 5 posts by a particular author on an authors page?

    4) Can I create a custom dashboard front page, so that the authors see internal news?

    5) When logged in, authors can see the ‘Search Metre’ plugin results. Can this be hidden? The same goes for Akismet spam comments?

    Thanks

  • 3) Take a look at the Misty Look theme for how he does this. I haven’t looked at it myself but he includes an author page which lists the last 10 post by each author.

    4) edit wp-admin/index.php to suit your tastes.

    Don’t know about the others right off. Maybe someone else can take a shot.

    Thanks, I looked at Misty, and it goes like this (slightly butchered to fit in here);

    global $wp_query;
    $curauth = $wp_query->get_queried_object();

    echo $curauth->nickname;

    echo $curauth->first_name. ' ' . $curauth->last_name;

    $curauth->description;

    if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
    the_time('d M Y');
    the_permalink();
    the_title();

    endwhile; else:
    _e('No posts by this author.');
    endif

    Anyone have any ideas on the other questions?

    The Role Manager plugin does work in adding/editing own pages, you just have to do a minor tweak. Sadly at the moment the plug in page is down (where I found the tweak) but I’m here to say it can be done.
